Hermit Homewares is my little experiment. Have you ever had an idea or came across a unique item that you liked and then later watched as it saturated the market? I have! So it’s time I put my money where my mouth is, and back it up with hard evidence! Go blog power!

Hermit Homewares is a diary of sorts as well as a contacts list, so I know who to call when I have money to burn! It will feature a vast range of homewares, from mass produced to originals. It will introduce you to the talented creators and master craftsmen behind the pieces, and most importantly, let you know where to buy them.

But first things first. Who am I? Well thanks for asking! My name is Yasmin. I live on the Northern Beaches in Australia with my Hubby, 2 kids, a cranky cat and a scruffy dog. A former Fine Arts student at COFA – the College of Fine Arts in Sydney where I studied sculpture, I then went from photographic retail at Fletcher’s Photographics to press photography at Snapper Media. My 8 year stint at Snapper Media saw me shoot all things celebrity and sell images to Australian magazines and media. The birth of my second child marked a change in direction, the chance to start something new and explore my love of homewares. This is the story of how Hermit Homewares was born.

So I guess Hermit Homewares is the accumulation of all of my past experiences rolled into one. It will read like a magazine, feature some of my photographs and show off the creations of my arty & crafty friends. Join us as we discover all that is new and amazing out there in the world of homewares.

Welcome to Hermit Homewares, I hope you enjoy your stay!

    I am trying to find the name of the cool succulent that looks like little round green rocks with pink flowers. Where can I find that succulent?
